Ice not dispensing from the freezer door. Water dispenser works fine.


It sound like the switch is not being hit from the actuator. If it is a whirlpool or some Kenmore models then there is a switch bracket that is notorious for breaking the switch mounts. Pop the front frame carefully off usually from the bottom with a putty knife and this should reveal a switch bracket. Other brands will come apart differently.

My ice dispenser quit working


There are multiple components that can cause this.
Open the door and put your finger in the ice tray. Is there any ice or water in it.
If so then the problem is likely the ice maker.
If not then the water supply is either stopped up or the water valve solenoid is broke.
If their is ice then the ice maker may not be making ice for other reasons. Is the Ice Level arm down? If so, the Icemaker has a clock like motor that is actuated by a temperature sensor.

Ice maker calls for water, solenoid fills ice tray, temperature sensor gets cold over about 45 minutes and closes the motor circuit telling the icemaker to dump ice.

If everything is right and still doensn't make ice, some mechanical aspect or the icemaker appears to be broken.

Thanks for using FixYa, Good Luck.

Fridge Freezer model KA58NP90 Ice maker problem


What is most likely your problem is the crushed ice solenoid. This solenoid, which is located next to the auger motor behind the ice bucket, is failing to actuate when you request cubed ice. Its "home" setting is crushed, and actuates to allow cubes past the crushing mechanism in the bucket. To be certain its the problem, remove the ice bucket, and tape the door light switch in the closed position. actuate the ice dispenser lever, for both cubed and crushed ice. you will see a square hole next to the rotating fork, when you select cubes, it should open. If it does open, there is something wrong with your ice bucket, perhaps the arm is broken, or the door inside bucket is off its snap in type hinge or broken altogether. If it doesnt open, replace the solenoid

No water going to ice maker. Ice maker is calling for water. 10 volts on plug voltage does not change when I hear it turn on


Hi. Sounds as if you are some what familiar with using a meter for testing circuits. Disconnect at least one lead from the water valve coil and Read across the coil checking for resistance. I should read less than 10 Ohms.

From what I read about you only having 10 volts you have a voltage issue as the coil voltage should read in this range 115 / 120 VAC. The 120 VAC is controlled by an actuation arm that is actuated by a cam lobe inside the icemaker front cover. If the actuating arm is bent or broken the icemaker will cycle but the water valve will never be activated with 120VAC to energize the coil for the duration of the icemaker fill cycle.

If your up to it you can make your own test cord from an old extension or power cord with two female bayonet terminal ends and verify the water valve operation.
Connect the locally made by you test cord female terminals to the water valve and BRIEFLY plug in the cord. The water valve should open when you plug in the cord and shut off when you unplug the test cord.

Ice and water dispenser stopped working


Welcome to the computer world. When depressed, the paddle actuates a switch attached to the bracket above. The switch sends a low voltage signal to a small circuit board mouted right behind the display. A computer chip on that small board communicates with another chip on the main control board mounted in the rear wall. Your situation could be a bad actuator switch, a broken paddle tab, possibly a bad door switch (the fresh food doors must be closed to dispense), or a bad electronic control.

Whirlpool gold refrigerator icemaker leaking water


hi there,

sounds like the ice or water actuator or paddle is broken. purchase a new paddle and replace it.

the reason you have leak is because you have warm air entering through the broken part into the freezer.

can you provide me with the model # and i will send you a part breakdown.

Water Actuator is broken.


I had the same problem with my water dispenser and since they were willing to sell me a part but provided no directions and I couldn't locate any I decided to make my own for those who might need them. Here is a link to a PDF I made, hope it helps.

Before starting this job I would also like to warn all to please be save and UNPLUG the fridge. The whole job took me less then 30 minutes and I doubt anything will go bad in that amount of time.
